Patients are able to get in and out of bed in Unit 2A much safer due to new bedside safety mats designed to prevent falls. The mats, which were made possible through a Volunteer Association/Health Sciences Foundation Family CARE grant, have beveled edges for easy patient transfers from wheelchairs and lifts, and non-slip surfaces and padding underneath.
How to Manage Your Cancer Symptoms – Guides for Patients were developed by Cancer Care Ontario to help you to manage your cancer-related symptoms. The guides focus on individual topic areas including: pain, fatigue, nausea and vomiting, loss of appetite, diarrhea, constipation, shortness of breath, mouth problems, depression and anxiety.
The guides are available on the CCO website https://www.cancercareontario.ca/en/symptom-management. If you need help accessing the guides ask a member of your health care team or call the Patient Education Lead at 807-684-7310; toll free 1-877-696-7223 ext.7310, email email@example.com.
